7:14 am
he might be the most unusual presidential candidate we have seen in a long time. he's 73 years old, he has a thick brooklyn accent. he's from vermont. and he's a self-described socialist. that said, bernie sanders has quite a following among the real progressive left of the democratic party, there will be debates. the dnc has said there will be at least four debates that hillary clinton has agreed to take part in. and it's not just bernie sanders. we are going to see martin o'malley. we expect he will announce he will run. so hillary clinton will have competition, dan. i don't think that she's fearful that either one of these two will beat her. >> well, it certainly will make things more interesting at the very least. >> definitely. >> jon, thank you. jon will have much more on the race to the white house, coming up later on "this week," on abc, including his interview with ohio governor john kasich, will he run?

7:16 am
so many crashes during practice, drivers like to push the envelope at the indy 500, any concerns over the track? >> reporter: you know, it's been a very, very difficult may, worst than they have seen in years, maybe even decades because of several crashes. hinchcliffe suffered life-threatening injuries, thankfully he's okay. all these drivers tell me the risk is ultimately worth the reward. winning this race is so big, it creates instant star status, paula. >> all right, lindsay, greater risk, greater reward. enjoy the race today. we'll be looking for you. >> thank you. >> and there will be a special honorary starter in the form of patrick dempsey and david letterman making his first appearance on their prerace show. >> he deserves a break. david letterman. 33 years of service. >> that's right. catch all of the indy 500 excitement right here on abc starting at 11:00 a.m. eastern. >> with mcdreamy making a special appearance. >> yes. while the indy 500 is part

7:18 am
now 18 years old, she never knew her hero. though she heard all about him. >> if it wasn't for him, i wouldn't be here. me and my mom wouldn't be here. >> reporter: peppin, now in his 70s, was surprised to receive an invitation to attend her high school graduation. >> the day i got her e-mail was one of those signature days that kind of makes your life worthwhile. >> reporter: having made possible the commencement of one life experience, he is delighted to be there for another. >> i'm happy you tracked me down. >> so am i. >> i wouldn't miss this for the world. >> reporter: a reunion 18 years in the making. for "good morning america," david wright, abc news, new york. >> oh, my word. he said getting that e-mail makes his life worthwhile, what an incredible moment. >> this big crazy planet, sometimes two lives intersect and really cool things can happen. we do have a breaking story right now, so we want to get it back to rob with a look at what's happening in the southern central part of this country.
7:19 am
>> to use your words the weather has been crazy. across the southern plains, parts of eastern colorado, this is what happened yesterday, severe thunderstorms, rain. that's hail, actually, coming down so hard that the hail is flooding the streets along with the rainfall, so, that's the potential today. we're not only seeing the flooding across texas and oklahoma, and really the past several weeks, we have been in this pattern where they get severe weather, flooding severe weather, flooding. all kind of the same time and that is what we see today. today, the severe weather threat slides a little bit further to the east. springfield and little rom. that will stretch farther to the east and down to the south as we go through tomorrow. dallas, back to houston and corpus christi under the gun tomorrow. i think we'll see another pulse come out of that system that's in the rockies that just refuses to move. meanwhile after a chilly start yesterday across the northeast, beautiful sunshine we are seeing the heat begin to build for the first unofficial day in summer. 85 degrees in raleigh. 82 degrees in philadelphia. 80 degrees in boston.
